EXCEPTIONAL EXTENDED UNTIL 23 March
From December 14, 2013 to March 16, 2014, The Maeght Foundation presents an exhibition dedicated to the artist Djamel Tatah. This retrospective monograph is organized in collaboration with the Public Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Algiers (MAMA) and the Villa Medici in Rome. A selection of some fifty works (46 paintings including some very large-scale polyptychs and a set of prints) allows us to discover his work since the late 1980s. Djamel Tatah has built a silent and inhabited universe that has made him one of the major artists of the representation of the human figure at the moment when he has reached maturity. More information.
Painters and sculptors collaborated with the Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert, creating works which were integrated into the building and the surrounding natural environment: the Giacometti courtyard, the Miró labyrinth with its sculptures and ceramics, the mosaic murals of Chagall and Tal Coat, Braque’s pond and stained glass window and Bury’s fountain. Indoor and outdoor spaces link up with each other through the sculpture garden, the courtyards, terraces and patios. The Maeght Foundation is already famous for its architecture and gardens; it is also home to one of Europe’s richest collections of modern and contemporary art. The greenery of its grounds makes the Maeght Foundation the ideal place to discover the great artists of our time.
Between two temporary exhibitions, some rooms can be closed to the public. The fee is reduced accordingly.
